A contemporary novel of romance and renewal from perennial bestseller Jude Deveraux, First Impressions is an emotionally charged story of one woman's bid to start over. Eden Palmer knows how to make it on her own. The forty-something single mother has worked hard to raise her beloved daughter -- now twenty-seven and recently married. The offspring of a terrible event, Eden's daughter, Melissa, has long been the jewel of Eden's life, the one for whom she would sacrifice anything and everything. But sooner or later a woman must come into her own, and that's what Eden tries to do when she moves to Arundel, North Carolina, to take ownership of Farrington Manor, a beautiful old house filled with charm and memories that was willed to Eden by the person who cared for her when she needed it most. Torn between the desire to stay with her daughter and the need to build a separate life on her own, Eden opts for some distance and some much-needed perspective. But it's not long before she realizes that sometimes you have to go back before you can start over. Arriving in Arundel -- the South's prettiest small town -- Eden quickly learns that looks can be deceiving when her move is met with delight in some quarters and jealousy in others. Pursued by two eligible bachelors -- the rugged Jared McBride and Braddon Granville, local lawyer and town catch -- Eden is flattered, and more than a little suspicious. Juggling the attentions of two men is hard enough, but soon Eden's bid to start over plunges her in the middle of a mystery that threatens not just her plans and reputation, but her very life. Can she use one man to save her from the other?… (mer)

A great romantic suspense novel. Murder, mystery, and mayhem abound. Lots of great plot twists and turns. A real page turner. Besides focusing on romance and mystery there is also a lot of humor, art, and gardening in this book. A great read! ( )

First Impressions by Jude Deveraux
Eden Palmer was sent away when as a teen she became pregnant from a rape on her way home. She ended up filing papers for a woman in the Carolinas. When her son was released from jail, a sex pedophile, she had
to leave and journeyed to NY where she got a job in the publishing field and raised her 5 yo daughter. Now she's notified she owns the house as both the mother and her son are gone. Her daughter is pregnant and
expecting her first. Eden decides to check out the house and spend some time with the longtime residents still alive.
Jared McBride is sent to find out things about this woman as her name was on a paper that a spy swallowed before he died. He's been part of special ops for many years and is recuperating, taking things slow as his leg heals. He will take up residency in the 'washroom' where he will spend time fishing and relaxing.
Because she attacked him in her house when he was attempting to reset the breakers she felt bad and invited him to live in her house so it'd be easier to feed him.
Love how the garden helped solved some riddles and puzzles and mysteries in this book. Learned a few things about wisteria as well.
The history of the garden was fascinating and going to look awesome once planted. Excellent finish. ( )

When she was a teenager, Eden Palmer, was raped and got pregnant. Her family promptly threw her out of the house and let her make her own way. She was taken in as an employee by Mrs. Farrington until she had to leave in the middle of the night in fear for her daughter from Mrs. Farrington's son. Now, years later, Eden's daughter is married and pregant, and Eden finds that she has been left Farrington Manor in a will. She returns to the site and finds an FBI agent snooping through her house and beats the hell out of him. It only gets more interesting from there.

I liked this book. I didn't think that it was anything REALLY special, but I did enjoy the read. ( )
